Update: öli ũclip magnetic paperclips


Recently some öli ũclip magnetic paperclips crossed my desk and got pressed into service. My initial impressions formed the basis for a review, but my opinion has changed enough to warrant an update.

Unfortunately, the colorful little clips don’t always stay in place. Unlike a traditional paperclip or a binder clip, these babies have too little tension to grasp paper securely. As long as my journal is closed tightly with a band around it, they keep pages together. Shake things up even a little and the clips wiggle free. The large one placed on the outside of a Midori Traveler’s Notebook literally took a nosedive for the pavement. It didn’t get damaged, but the papers went flying.

öli ũclips may well be the most attractive clip on the market, but for me they have turned into decorations rather than tools. Perhaps that is all they need to be.



  1. Is there a way to improve the tension?


    • I don’t know of a way to improve the tension since it is based on magnets imbedded in the plastic.
